I'm surprised that nobody has posted on here on this topic, but as you probably all know, it is the intention to end HST workings before the beginning of the new timetable on May 19th.

Plans are apparently afoot to have a grand finale at Paddington on Saturday 18th May when the last four will depart within half an hour of each other. The diagrams for the day (that have been copied and pasted from another forum so no guarantee as to accuracy) are as follows:

0657 PLY PAD
1045 PAD SWA
1429 SWA PAD
1830 PAD TAU
2132 TAU EXD

0729 EXD PAD
1121 PAD GMV
1435 GMV PAD
1815 PAD CNM

0645 BRI SWA
0929 SWA PAD
1330 PAD BRI
1600 BRI PAD
1822 PAD HFD

0650 PNZ PAD
1300 PAD BRI
1530 BRI PAD
1803 PAD PLY

Plan is for 1803/1815/1822/1830 departures to be side by side in Paddington Plats1-4.

There is also a "Farewell special" on 1st June, with profits to be donated to Action For Children:

GWR have now announced that the final normal HST departure from Paddington, the 1830 to Taunton via Bristol, will have compulsory seat reservations.

So if you want to ride on it, get your tickets ASAP if not before :)
